The Letter "G"

Welcome back to Read Not Guess. Today we’re going to work on the letter “G.”


Remember that we’re going to focus on the sounds the letters make. Both parent and child will need to be able to see the screen.


Ok, let’s get started.


Today’s Letter Sound

Today we’re going to work on the letter "G." It’s pronounced like the beginning of the word “guitar” or the end of the word "bag."


Ask your child to make the “g” sound 3 times as they point to the letters:


g

g

g


Ask your child if they can think of any words that start with the “g” sound. If they need help, the words get, girl, and garden all start with the “g” sound.


Have them say the “g” sound 3 more times as they point to the letters:


g

g

g

Word Practice


Ask your child to say the correct sounds as they point to the letters:


g a p

g ap

gap


And:


g e t

g et

By the end, check to make sure your child is reading the word as "get," and not adding an extra sound at the end.


Let’s do a few more:

d i g

d ig

dig

And:


d u g

d ug

dug


And:


b a g

b ag

bag


Silly Sentences


If you think your child is ready, see if they can read this:


A big dog got hit on his ribs.


If they read it smoothly, great! If they struggle, have them re-read it another time or two to get it right.


That’s it for today. We’ll see you next time,
